Ode to Football

Orange and black, how I love thee,
You go together like the beach and the sea.

My boys will wear you game after game,
Proudly pointing to their own last name!

We dress in orange and black from head to toe,
Does it help our team? We'll never know!

We nervous-eat chips and dip until we can't breathe,
The referees calls are so bad, often we seethe!

Bad-mouthing other teams is part of the fun,
If you're a Steelers fan -sorry, our friendship is done!
Four quarters of the game is often more than we can take,
Don't you know a Super Bowl ring is at stake?

This could be our year, I feel it in my soul,
If you win it all, oh, how I'd be made whole!

I'm anxiously awaiting this Sunday at one,
So I can shout with glee, "We won, we won!"


Who will YOU be rooting on this weekend? :)

Venus Trapped in Mars
